Subject: Too good to be a four!
OK so the sound is rough in spots, big deal! After exploring virtually all of '68 I have found far worse sounding recordings. This show cannot be faulted for that. It is a stellar performance and I agree with LR that it deserves be held right along side the spectacular August shows.

Subject: As good as the August shows -- other copy is better
This show is a continuation of the August shows, in terms of set lists, high quality performances energy. Performances on a lot of the songs are fast.

But, the other version of this show (Miller) is better. The audio quality is better than this one (Volderding), which also has a buzz and some clipping.

Listen to that version here:

A fine, fine show.

Subject: Well?
As compared to the more perfect version that preceded this hit, this one contains St.Stephen.

Measuring percentages and all that crap!

Listen!Listen!Listen!

69' version of The Eleven in 1968; that's the
point of the band doing it in the first place.
TIMELESS Such as God

MUSIC SOOTHES THE SAVAGE BEAST

Subject: Bad mix job.
Is it me, or is the mixing here kinda bad? You can't hear weir at all 80% of the time. You can barely hear the vocals and phil isn't too much in the mix either. It's a real shame, cause these sound like knock-out performances.
